Magic Drum Orchestra’s (MDO) – aka Glyn “Bigga” Bush of Rockers Hi-Fi – “Original Nuttah feat. Bunty (DJ Madd Remix)” is the lead-single from the percussive group’s forthcoming remix EP “100 Whites A Day” (out 8th May) on Tru Thoughts.
Building on MDO’s irresistible dance-filled percussive rework of Shy FX’s & UK Apache’s ragga-jungle classic, DJ Madd, aka Hungarian-born now US-based Peter Simon, reinterprets the track giving it a UK funky-afrobeat tip, chopping up the vocals of Bunty (Brighton’s Kassia Zermon) into a hypnotic-hook.
“Original Nuttah feat. Bunty (DJ Madd Remix)” is a peak-time contagious weapon, a dancefloor-filler and future dance-anthem. DJ Madd originally moved from his hometown of Budapest to Bristol, where he set foot scoring a guest mix on Skream’s Rinse FM show and spots on compilations by Ministry of Sound. Fusing underground bass music and Jamaican reggae sound, DJ Madd has been championed by the likes of Toddla T, Mary Anne Hobbs and David Rodigan.
